The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Boy, are you in luck, Rocky 'ol boy!

    I have just switched to a 3 day split and so I will give you my old 2 day split.

    It's really easy to follow and use!

    Monday - Legs

    Thursday - Upper body


    Okay, here's the other info which you may find helpful.

    On leg day, these are the exercises I would do:

    *1 Leg ext.

    *2 Squat
    1 Squat

    *1 Leg Press
    1 Leg Press

    1 Hack Squat

    *1 Lying leg curls
    1 lying leg curls
    1 standing leg curls

    *1 standing (or sitting) calf raises
    1 standing (or sitting) calf raises


    All right, that is all for the legs.

    The upper body workout is a little more tricky because there are more exercises and muscle groups involved!

    Thursday - upper body

    Notice, I did these exercises back-to-back to save some time.

    *2 Lat pulldown
    *2 Bench press

    1 Lat pulldown
    1 BB Bench-press

    1 Hammer Rows
    1 DB Incline Bench-press

    1 seated-pulley row
    1 cable crossovers

    1 DB shoulder press
    1 DB shrugs

    1 side laterals
    1 bent-over laterals

    1 CG Bench-press
    1 BB curl

    1 Incline ext.
    1 Reverse BB curl


    P.S. You are right this was a simple question...but it took a while to answer! lol

    * means warm-up sets

    Let me ask you something, why are you going on a 2 day split? Not enough time or just to mix things up?

    Try a push/pull. All pushing movements one day, all pulling movements the next.
    I may not always be right, but I'm never wrong

    Or a day for everything below your waist and a day for everything above. That's pretty much how Bill Phillips designed Body for Life.
    sometimes slowly

    My stats:
    Age - 43
    ht - 5' - 7"
    wt - 152 lbs
    bf% - 10.5%
    pipe dream goal 175 lbs @ 10% bf
    making the switch to power lifting

    I think he means 1/2 of the body one day, and 1/2 the other day.
